Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is the action-RPG we've been waiting for


Early 2020 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One

So long Project Z, and hello Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot. We got the official name for Bandai Namco and CyberConnect2's next big DBZ game at Microsoft's E3 2019 presser and I am extremely here for it.

This is an "all-new action-RPG recounting the beloved story of Dragon Ball Z like never before." You could go for one of those, right? I could absolutely go for one of those. I still remember beating up dinosaurs in the Game Boy Advance days. I remember them and I cherish them to this day.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will span "epic events to lighthearted side quests, including never-before-seen story moments that answer some burning questions of Dragon Ball lore for the first time," according to Bandai Namco. It's got fighting. It's got fishing. Goku's probably going to eat a lot of food, and he'll see a lot of familiar faces. The developers are promising a "massive cast" of characters for the game.

This seems like a safe bet, conceptually. Let's just hope they stick the landing.
